of the family but it also happens to save everybody a lot of money. mr. limbaugh was perfectly happy to read on-air advertisements for a company that has wills and living wills. just like advance directives, just like end of life counseling is an unequivocally good thing. which brings us back to the cluster fox nonsense that is glenn beck. after he called president obama a racist with, quote, a deep seated hatred for white people, his advertisers fled. the latest, conagra, roche, radio shack bringing the total to a dozen advertisers who have dropped beck. he remains on the air for now able to preach the same lies about health care reform but congressman rick larsen of washington has a perfect rebuttal as displayed in larson's recent town hall meeting. >> now, folks will say that's not true but i've got facts on my side and you've got glenn beck on your side. >> my hero. as for mr. beck's hypocrisy on the subject, as assembled by "the daily show" here is mr. beck lately. >> america already has the best health care in the world. we do take care of our sick. you're about to lose the best health ca

and john than. the other day rush limbaugh said i had done something he would have got in trouble for. please explain. i said that last year ted kennedy passed the torch of the kennedy brotherhood to barack obama making him the next kennedy, and it was so clear to everybody that's what was going on. he said if he had said something like that he would have been accused of making an ethnic slur because i used the word brother. i point out -- i said it at the time. not in an ethnic sense, not in a richelle sense, brother in the sense of sibling brother, actual brother. he jumped up and made himself into a victim again. what is the matter with these people? can't they take a week off? just take a week off. it's a funeral. take a week off from politics. >> if ted kennedy is one of the great senators of our time, rush limbaugh takes the crown as the great blowhard of our time. there's nobody who would have criticized rush limbaugh if he had talked about a brother because there's so many other things to criticize him for, other outrageous things that he says almost every day on the radio. so
the right thing or not? let's take a look at rush limbaugh today and what he had to say about the democratic party. >> right out of adoofl hitler's playbook. now, what are the similarities between the democrat party of today and the nazi party in germany? well, the nazis were against big business. they hated big business, and, of course, we all know that they were opposed to jewish capitalism. they were insanely irrationally against pollution. they were for two years mandatory voluntary service to germany. they had a whole bunch of make work projects to keep people working, one of which was the autobahn. they were against cruelty and viv vi section of animals, but in the radical sense of devaluing human life they banned smoking. they were totally against that. they were for abortion and euthanasia of the undesirables as we all know, and they were for cradle to grave nationalized health care. >> i do not know where to begin, but i'm going to start with bob shrum. bob, i thought i heard everything. they are insanely against pollution. well, there you have it. anybody who is against pollution i

post" putting the facts out. what i'm urging individuals to do, not just listening to rush limbaugh, pull out facts, get nonpartisan groups, talk to them, talk to hops and health care provider, et cetera because for the first time everybody's invested in this. the president's had pharmaceutical company, health care providers, hospitals, community health centers all work on this together to make a difference and that's why i believe, and know that we're going to pass a bill that will take us in the right direction that's going to cover more americans for health care, make sure that people that have preconditions that are not denied for and forcing people in bankruptcy and bring down the cost. >> an interesting month listening to you and your swaernts. >>> >> a family spokesperson says eunice shriv is critically ill. a spokesman for arnold schwarzenegger says the golf governor is there with the family in cape cod. 88-year-old shriver a champion for the disabled about best known for her work to establish the special olympics. >>> the widow of tv pitchman billy mays says she's angry ove

at these town hall meetings. rush limbaugh calling them nazis and now nancy's calling these protesters un-american. what a colossal mess. we had the poll last week saying obama washington is divisive. it's just this is a mess. what do you do if you're inside the white house? how do you call a time-out and say enough already? >> i don't know how you do it, joe. joe, i'm afraid that all the beginning of the obama a administration, you are down there on the mall that's thousands and thousands of people that air of good feeling and national unity and the belief that obama may just be that agent of change that can bring us together i'm afraid that has all dissipated and is all but gone. he's not down to bush levels but he's down to the point where he about won the election but it is a much more divisive situation. this is one of the ugliest debates i've ever seen. >> it is. it's ugly. you know, mika, we had said this before, several months ago, that every president over the past 16 years, 17 years, said they're going to change washington. bill clinton was going to bring us all together. divisi
it was from rush limbaugh. >> this was going to be a guiliani verses hillary clinton election year. ipeople did not know what to mae of this all cider, first black presidential candidates that had a chance of winning. one of the most bizarre things was to see a largely white political press corps that just as soon eat that whites are racist and when that vote for him. when he won in iowa this, the shock was enormous. they could not believe that hillary clinton was not mopping this guy up. there was a feeling that every white person in western pennsylvania aid to black people and they will vote against him. they assumed a country that was racist when it was not in terms of obama. >> if we followed you around all week and did you invite is, we will, where do we see you and how w-- when i read your columns i see things that i do not see from anyone else. >> i would be on the phone corresponding with people. i am at home when i write because i cannot get anything done sitting in an office. i really need television. some of the riding i do at night. i tend to work really late on thursday night.
is she mangles a whole bunch of facts, but she also gets some signs off that rush limbaugh. go ahead and copy number of things she says that are wrong. roll the tape. >> you might have heard their philosophical leader, i think his name is rush limbaugh. and he said early on i hope that he does. you know what that means? if the president, your commander-in-chief fails, america fails. now, when a senator says that this will be his waterloo, and we all know what happened at waterloo, then we have him and he fails. do we want a failed state of the united states russian ark so remember, they are spreading fear and they are trying to see that the first president who looks like me fails. and i want you to know, people look at the united states as a country that has changed its way and has elected someone from kenya and kansas. i will put it like that. >> that's quite a headline again. did you know that wreck obama was from kenya and kansas westerner and i think it's from fighting to eisenhower was from kansas. i'm from kansas. stu and his mother is from kansas and his father is from kenya.
, president obama. it is against everything he is trying to do. you loud mouths like rush limbaugh, sean hannity, all these other folks that you listen to daily, even my good friend joe scarborough, it is ridiculous. all you are trying to do is disrupt something a needs to be done for all people. not just your people and the people you e-mail and try to get something done to disrupt something. host: let's hear from our guest. guest: we have been opposing big government for 25 years. doesn't matter who is proposing it. we proposed many of george bush's policies that were encroachments into people's lives. we opposed bill clinton's tax hikes. we opposed george bush role one's tax hikes. it has nothing to do with president obama. it has to do with healthcare reform going in the wrong direction. we've got a lot of ideas and none of them is it the current legislation and we think it takes it entirely in the wrong direction so we are opposed to the policy. host: how many members does freedomworks claim? >> we have over 700,000 members that we have built up the last 25 years. host: free to jo
! greta: one person says that it is less an opposition and more like astroturf, and rush limbaugh does not like it. >> i find itç interesting that the democrats are starting to refer to these towncar meetings as unruly mobs, we cannot promise security -- we are referring to these town hall meetings as unruly mobs. no, these are citizens. what these democrats are accusing you of doing it at these town-hall meetings is exactly what obama taught people to do. heç is the community agitator. he is the community organizer. he is the guy who taught people to show up at events over and over again and read people up, tear them down, disrupt them, and make sure it does not happen, and now, it is happening to them, it is not a ginned up, is genuine. -- not gin up. it is genuine. -- not ginned up. >> i will answer any questions they have. if they want to come over to the white house and answered line by line what is going on, i will be happy to do that. greta: but is president obama even going to read this bill? listen closely to press secretary robert gibbs. >> will be president read the enti
. you look at the folks, when they listen to rush limbaugh or listen to fox news, they think they are getting a respectful hearing of their news which they don't get with other networks. >> you used the phrase the death panels, and sarah palin said she didn't want an american in which her parents or baby with downs syndrome had to go and a half front of the panel. is this something where he told her will you quit making things up? >> she said herself when she was leaving the stage and moving on, media, will you stop making things up. it's appropriate this week for people to -- to call people on things like that if she's going to use this as a plat fofrmt i was struck how that spread to people who are not on facebook. someone asked senator grassley this week in iowa if, you know, if he was concerned about that. he said i'm not going to pull the plug on grandma. he did not say that that was incorrect necessarily. >> the fact, there's been this twitter, tit-for-tat between senator specter and grassley. >> can i say one thing about twitter? one thing that is interesting to me abo
limbaugh saying the health care logo looks like a russian swastika? >> i don't know what to say about that. americans are suffering under the rising costs of health care, they are paying 30% more out of pocket than they did, it's threatening their jobs, they are being denied health coverage. >> we're debating that. >> trying to discuss that in a civil way is extremely important. >> you were a journalist for three decades, you worked for abc, cbs, you were a guest on this program many times. is it uncomfortable to be pushing an administration line on health care on people who were your former colleagues. >> you mean trying to promote, advocate on behalf of health insurance reform is a gratifying thing to do. this is the country's greatest need. they have been waiting for decades -- >> if you were still a journalist you would be sitting in this seat asking the questions i am. instead you're a saleswoman. >> it's something all of us in the administration believe deeply. as a journalist i covered the last effort to try to bring health insurance reform to the country. i saw how the special inte
say she's pro abortion and i remember rush limbaugh even back in june said her record on abortion is not clear. what is your objection to her nomination? >> she's been evasive on a number of questions. i met with her privately. i asked her some fairly simple questions about the constitution, the bill of rights. she seems more founded in precedent than in upholding the constitution. and a number of us are very concerned about an activist court that's trying to expand what the constitution intends for the federal government to do. >> do you think that her record has been a record of an activist? >> we have some problems with a number of her decisions, particularly on bill of rights questions such as the second amendment. the decision that she made about the firemen was questionable. a lot of her speeches suggest that she has a different idea of what a justice should do. but she had some confirmation conversions, and she came back to the point of view of a constructionist type of judge. but she has not been consistent in her comments and seems very evasive wit
senator called the protesters un-american. she retracted that. rush limbaugh went on a long speech during his radio show where he compared democrats to nazis. he compared the president to hitler. i am wondering if the president has seen any of this. the nazi imagery has been condemned by jewish groups but i'm wondering if he feels anything about this. >> i think he has seen news reports. i don't know whether it is written or cable reports. regardless of where we are and the differences we have on an issue as important as health care, i know the president believes strongly that we can discuss these issues without personally maligning the person we are discussing this issue with. we want to do so in a way that respects the dignity of each individual. i think anytime you make references to what happened in germany in the '30's and 40's, i think you are talking about an event that has no equivalent. anytime anyone ventures to compare anything to that, they are on thin ice. it is best not deployed. we can have a discussion in our democracy about where we want to go and why or why not we want t
limbaugh and sean hannity and george bush are at greater risk of assassination van barack obama. >> guest: as a fun part of the book. in the last chapter i point out i wouldn't have mentioned it if they haven't brought it up so much other ad campaign you keep hearing about this unique rest of, is that being assassinated because he is black in and this is unlike any other president or any other presidential candidate in the call in for a special secret service protection and article about i'm so worried review it and there was some liberal in britain sank in the is elected he will be assassinated so i wouldn't have mentioned if they haven't been dangling the big red tape in front of me but in point of fact pretty much every presidential assassination or attempted assassination in the history of america was committed by a liberal. some version have entered his communist palestinian extremists and there are a couple who didn't particularly have politics someone include john wilkes booth in that and john hinckley, but envelopes with casey was an actor. he was being hit a piece maugre in and t
as it would give ammunition to the people he describes as far right-wing whether it is rush limbaugh, sean hannity and the like and people he apparently feels have antipathy toward the black community and don't have a sincere passion to try to help uplift and so he says we don't need to have those people to give them ammunition. bill cosby said it's not a matter of earing dirty laundry. it isn't as if there are people who don't know about the problems, about the high dropout rate and don't know about the achievement gap between black and white children, who don't know about feet high incarceration rates and celebration of the drug culture. and i think it is just so difficult to have that conversation, steve. it's painful to hear it and then there are those as the caller points out will legitimately use that to distort that in some cases by use it to say we don't need social intervention to help those left behind and often left behind because of historical injustice in the society. so then it leads people i think into positions that are highly polarized and i am not going to admit to falls
